Queer Cambridge Audio Trail

A Great Recorded History: Queer Cambridge Audio Trail

Created by Dr Diarmuid Hester (Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in English) this free, self-guided one-hour audio trail reveals the rich and often radical history of LGBTQ+ Cambridge. Explore the city’s long-forgotten queer spaces and places, guided by the memories of queer people and queer Cambridge writing by the likes of E.M. Forster, Edward Carpenter, and Ali Smith.
